Bits+Atoms – Tangible interfaces for exhibitions and events [€ 120]
Tangible interfaces in practice.
During the workshop attendees are going to learn basics of Processing environment and the means to connect it to the real world – gathering data from the sensors and controlling basic electronics.
All that skills and knowledge would be then used to conceive, design and create various interfaces for the imaginary museum or any other context suggested by the participants.
>>> PLEASE NOTE:
Participants should bring their own laptop with processing downloaded and unzipped (https://processing.org/download/) and an Arduino with usb a-b cable. Minimum requirement is Arduino UNO (https://www.floris.cc/shop/en/arduino-boards/8-arduino-uno.html)
An example of tangible interface that this workshop will teach to create can be watched here:
Participants will be organized in workgroups of 4 or 5 members and will be provided with a set of tools, materials and electronic components such as various kind of sensors, jumper wires, breadboard, batteries, AA battery holder, male headers, female headers, buttons, microswitches, etc.
_1st day_ Introduction to Processing. Basic building blocks for the workshop.
_2nd day_ Ideas brainstorming and validation. Building prototypes.
_3rd day_ Building prototypes. Discussion of results and tips for the next steps.
THIS WORKSHOP ACCEPTS A MAXIMUM OF 15 ATTENDEES
panGenerator is an interdisciplinary new media design and art group based in Warsaw, Poland. Since 2010 we’re creating works of art and design that explore the new means of expression and interaction. We’re blending bits, beats and atoms, providing truly innovative products, and engaging experiences for audiences of art galeries, museums and festivals. Our projects are ranging from large scale interactive installations to the novel musical interfaces and tiny wearable-tech objects.
